January 18 | Reflect on God’s Goodness

January 18, 2022


So I gave you a land on which you did not toil and cities you did not build; and you live in them and eat from vineyards and olive groves that you did not plant. Joshua 24:13

Read: Joshua 24:2–13
Joshua 24


Joshua’s getting old. He knows he doesn’t have much time left, so he calls together the leaders of God’s people. God speaks through Joshua to remind the people who he is and what he’s done. God’s reminding the people he is good and they can trust him. He’s the same God who led their forefather Abraham, the same God who sent Moses to rescue their parents and grandparents from Egypt, the same God who kept protected them in the wilderness and the God who gave them the land they are now living in. He’s the God who has taken care of them time and again.

God can be trusted and is good today. He hasn’t stopped taking care of us. God sent Jesus to die on the cross for our sins so we can have a relationship with him. He guides us with the Holy Spirit. He sends the rain to grow crops and trees. He gives us plants and animals. Every sandwich, soda and salad are testaments to God’s goodness. He uniquely provides for each of us. God is good and can be trusted. We can follow him.


Think back through how God uniquely provides for you. On your phone or in your journal, make a list. Consider how God cares for you and is good through your different relationships, experiences or the ways he meets your needs. Thank God most of all for sending Jesus to restore your relationship with him. Thank God for proving to be trustworthy and reliable.
